About Me

I have just completed a 4 month placement with Sustainability Victoria to establish community energy projects in Gippsland.  It was terrific work with passionate, skilled people who are shaping the fundamental change that is needed in electricity generation. This was after 10 happy years at the helm of the South East Councils Climate Change Alliance where we conducted projects in both mitigation and adaptation on behalf of our region of councils.

Prior to that, I worked in education, public policy and programs and in environmental activism.

It’s not as though all of my time now is my own, but the choice regarding how I spend it is. I am a member of the Ministerial advisory committee, the Central Coastal Board, I am a member of Regional Development Australia’s Southern Melbourne Committee, one of 55 committees across the nation that develops the evidence base for and makes recommendations about regional development to state and federal governments and I’ve just stepped down as a Trustee of the Caroline Chisholm Education Foundation, providing scholarships to students such that education can provide its life-transforming miracle to students otherwise barred from enrolling in further education at Chisholm TAFE.
